A social enterprise creating pathways
out of homelessness

HoMie began with a group of friends talking to people living on the streets. Marcus, Nick and Robbie started to share these stories via their Facebook page, Homelessness in Melbourne and wanted to connect with people experiencing homelessness to give them a platform to be heard and understood. Three years later, HoMie is now a social enterprise with a community of over 50,000 people and a dedicated core of volunteers.

HoMie’s primary mission is to provide pathways out of homelessness. It does this by providing brand-new clothing, training and job opportunities to people experiencing homelessness. HoMie’s other goals are to change negative public attitudes towards homelessness, mobilise human compassion and make donating easier through innovative platforms.

In April 2015, the team crowd-funded their way to owning and running their own apparel label and store in Melbourne Central, and now on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy. The HoMie Street Store brings the team’s vision to life, and is Australia’s first ever retail clothing store to provide brand-new clothing and retail training to the homeless community.

A HoMie is a person who looks out for others. #BeAHoMie
